Introduction: Introducing the Pearlscale Goldfish – a fascinating and enchanting fish that will add a touch of elegance and glamour to your aquarium. With its distinctive and lustrous appearance, this Goldfish variant is a true gem among aquatic enthusiasts.

Scientific Name: The Pearlscale Goldfish is scientifically known as Carassius auratus. As a variant of the Goldfish species, it is characterized by its unique and eye-catching round, pearl-like scales.

Water Quality:

  • Temperature: Maintain the water temperature between 65°F to 75°F (18°C to 24°C) to ensure the well-being and health of Pearlscale Goldfish.
  • pH Level: Aim for a slightly acidic to neutral pH range of 6.5 to 7.5, which closely replicates their natural habitat conditions.
  • GH Level: Provide a general hardness (GH) level between 100 to 150 ppm to support their overall well-being.
  • KH Level: A carbonate hardness (KH) level between 50 to 150 ppm is recommended to maintain stable water conditions.

Feeding: Pearlscale Goldfish are omnivorous and enjoy a varied diet. Offer them high-quality flake or pellet food supplemented with live or frozen foods like brine shrimp, bloodworms, or daphnia to provide essential nutrients and enhance their vibrant colors.

Tank Mates: As peaceful and social fish, Pearlscale Goldfish can thrive in a community tank. Suitable tank mates include other peaceful Goldfish variants, Danios, and White Cloud Mountain Minnows.

Substrates and Tank Decorations: Provide a soft substrate to prevent injuries to their delicate fins and ample swimming space in a spacious tank. Decorate the aquarium with ornaments, plants, and driftwood to create a visually appealing and stimulating environment.

Suitable Plants: While Pearlscale Goldfish may nibble on plants, they can coexist with hardy species like Anubias, Java Fern, and Hornwort. Using artificial plants will also offer decoration without the risk of damage.

Sexing: Sexing Pearlscale Goldfish can be challenging, especially when they are young. Males may develop small white tubercles on their gill covers during the breeding season.

Breeding: Breeding Pearlscale Goldfish is possible in well-maintained aquariums with proper conditions and ample space for the spawning process. However, it is more commonly achieved through controlled breeding in outdoor ponds.

Maximum Size and Longevity: Pearlscale Goldfish can grow up to 5 to 7 inches (13 to 18 cm) in length. With proper care, they can live for approximately 10 to 15 years, making them a cherished and long-term companion in your tank.

General Information: The Pearlscale Goldfish’s captivating appearance, characterized by its pearly, domed scales, has made it a sought-after and beloved variety in the world of Goldfish keeping.

A Fun Fact: The rounded and elevated appearance of Pearlscale Goldfish scales is often likened to a “honeycomb” pattern, giving them a unique and alluring texture compared to other Goldfish types.

Experience the captivating allure and elegant beauty of the Pearlscale Goldfish as it graces your aquarium with its stunning appearance. Watch this charming Goldfish thrive and become the centerpiece of your aquatic world, captivating all who gaze upon its mesmerizing scales.
